See You Later, Kaitlin!

One of my very best friends left to the MTC today... Gosh I am so excited for her. She is going to do absolutely amazing. Her farewell talk alone was one of the best I've ever heard.

We had the opportunity last night to go over and help her pack her things. It's crazy that that will be me in only 40 days. The days go by so fast now.

Her darling mom gave us all a little pep talk since we all will be leaving shortly behind Kaitlin and her words will never leave my memory...

We are entering the Lord's army. This is a battle and we are heading straight towards the front lines. We will get doors slammed in our faces, we'll get spit at and pushed around, but we're fighting hard for what we know to be true. It will be the hardest of times, and the best of times.

A great comfort I have, is that I will be out there with my sisters doing the exact same thing they are. All 3 of us have grown up together and supported each other all through junior high and high school, and we'll still be there for each other through this whole new adventure- just spread out through the world. We have TONS of friends that will all be out in the field at the exact same time and I can't tell you how exciting that is.

As our last goodbye Eliza said a little prayer on Kait's front porch. A moment i'll never forget <3

My heart can't wait for the day when we all return home reunited and share the wonderful experiences that all of us will have.

Kait is going to Reno, and I am not worried about her one bit. She's the type of person that I'm worried about being WITHOUT her. The people of Reno are extremely blessed and I know they are in great hands.

Good luck, Kaitlin. And also good luck to Kyle Barber, Kyle Bradley, and Kaden Howell. They all left today as well. Kaden is in my ward and so i'm the only one left waiting to leave.

I'm next. :):) Oh boy:)
At her farewell.. hahah

Saying our goodbyes :'(
This is Kait heading out! She was welcomed by my good friend Chloe Schooley who has already been in the MTC for a few weeks. EVERYONE is in the MTC:) It's gotta be a party! haha :)
